Chelsea vs Liverpool stream: what channel and how to watch

It’s been a good start for both Chelsea and Liverpool to the new Premier League season but it won’t be possible for both of these title contenders to walk out of this encounter with 100 percent records. Here’s all you need to know on how to watch a Chelsea vs Liverpool live stream.

Those in the US can buy a season pass from Peakcock TV and watch 175 of the 380 Premier League games live for just $4.99 per month, including Chelsea vs Liverpool. (Don’t forget to use a VPN if you’re a US citizen stuck away from home.) In the UK you’ll need a Sky Sports subscription or Now TV pass.

Liverpool have secured the signing of ex-Barca and Bayern Munich midfield maestro Thiago Alcantara in time for the Champions League-winner to make his debut at a crowdless Stamford Bridge. The Reds emerged victorious from a somewhat crazy opening fixture against Leeds United. Should we expect this one to be a quieter affair?

Timo Werner looks to be fit and raring to go but he’ll be without the support of Thiago Silva, Christian Pulisic, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech, all of whom are sidelined. Frank Lampard’s chosen XI will have to be on their toes if they’re to stop Liverpool’s front line from running its usual riot.

Chelsea vs Liverpool kicks off at 4.30pm on Sunday and is set to be a fascinating marker of the season to come for both of these teams.

While the 2020/21 Premier League games are still crowdless, the EPL has agreed to televise each and every one and Chelsea vs Liverpool has been scheduled for Sky Sports on Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Main Event and in 4K on Sky Sports Ultra HD.

Even without a full Sky subscription, though, fans can enjoy a Chelsea vs Liverpool live stream with a Now TV day pass (£9.99) or a monthly pass (£33.99). Keep your eyes open for occasional discount as well as the option of the Now TV Mobile Month Pass which offers mobile device access for just £5.99 per month.

Make sure you’ve got your VPN handy if you’re stuck abroad.

Premier League rights in the US belong to NBC and Peacock TV who will host over 175 of the 380 Premier League matches in 2020/21, including Chelsea vs Liverpool. You can live stream all of those  games with a Peacock TV Premier League Pass for just $4.99 per month! It’s only available in the US, so any US citizen stuck outside their own country during the crisis will need to use a VPN to get access.

The Peackock TV app is available on iOS, Apple TV, Android, Android TV, Chromecast, LG smart TV, Vizio TV, PS4 and Xbox One. You can also watch the Peacock TV EPL streams through your web browser.

Peacock TV is part of the NBC network and you can also find Premier League football games televised through NBCSN and other NBC sports channels for the 2020/21 EPL season. If you don’t already have the NBC sports channels, you can add them to your cable package or switch to cable cutting platforms such as Sling TV and YouTube TV and add them there.

Watch Chelsea vs Liverpool from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League services, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.

Watch Chelsea vs Liverpool on DAZN (Canada, Japan, Brazil, Spain and more)

Footy fans in Spain, Japan, Brazil, Canada and certain other regions get the chance to watch Chelsea vs Liverpool for free. DAZN has the rights to show the EPL and a whole host of other sports in these territories, and, best of all, DAZN offers a one-month free trial. So long as you’ve not used yours already, then you can fill your boots.

Sadly the DAZN free trial isn’t available to those outside these regions. If you are a DAZN customer but travelling abroad, you’ll need to sign up to a VPN service to make sure you can access the DAZN Chelsea vs Liverpool live stream wherever you are.

Let’s not forget the wireless. Both the BBC and talkSPORT have rights to broadcast live football matches, with around 260 being heard over the season.

The Beeb won four of the seven available packages, giving them first pick of Saturday 3pm kick-offs, both Sunday games and a selection on Friday, Saturday and Monday evenings.

And you don’t have to own a radio to listen to 5 Live. It can be heard on the BBC Sport website or via Freeview, Freesat, Sky or Virgin Media.

talkSPORT is the only commercial radio broadcaster with live Premier League football rights. Its current deal comprises exclusive rights to Saturday lunch and tea-time kick-offs, as well as gaining second pick from any game with a traditional Saturday 3pm kick-off.

When can you watch Match of the Day online and on iPlayer?

Match of the Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match of the Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?

Match of the Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.

The show won’t be available straight after the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match of the Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it’s broadcast.

You can download Match of the Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.

Match of the Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
